    Well, you ordered it 2 days ago, but did bbts actually get it shipped 2 days ago? Ask BBTS and see what they have to say.

    They will send you an e-mail when it has been shipped. Usually it is a few days after the order.

    They are great to deal with, so you should have no problem.

    They have sent me a tracking number a little pre-mature before. I think they get a tracking number as soon as the have been billed for pick-up, but sometimes there isn't any info available until it has actually left their warehouse. I would give it another day or so.

    Yea, the shipping services will generate a tracking number as soon as it's entered into the system, of course that doesn't mean anything until the item is picked up or dropped off. Also, I've seen things get missed in scans before as well.

    Give it a week before you start worrying. Two days isn't really enough time for something to be processed properly. BBTS are reliable, I've never had a package go missing from them, so your goods will turn up.

    Depends on where you live, too. I live fairly close to BBTS and one time I placed an order in the morning and got my item the afternoon of the following day. Typically it takes a day or two longer than that, which is still FAR faster than any other online store.

    As was mentioned above, though you ordered it shipped two days ago, that doesn't necessarily mean it went out two days ago.

    As far as tracking numbers: If an item is shipped UPS, the tracking number isn't going to pull up any information on their website for at least ~12 hours after the time it was shipped (as in, "package actually given to UPS", not "tracking/shipping number generated"), at least in my experience. If shipping USPS, it's going to be at least 24 hours before they update the tracking information on their website.

    I don't know for sure what their procedure is, but I can say for sure I've placed orders on Saturdays and not had the order status change until Monday.

    On Saturdays, most post offices, if not all, close by noon in the US. And they're not open on Sundays.

    You won't have a status change until Monday.

    Could be, some places wait until the payment has actually posted (not just in pending) before they finalize an order. Since it'll post during regular banking hours it could take until Monday or Tuesday. Not knowing all the info that'd be my guess.

    Ebay:
    once i ordered something from them but for some weird reason, i got a tracking number for something that was shipped back in 06 and delivered to Long Island i think. i was worried but got the package none-the-less. I dunno if i got a wrong tracking number or if i got a re-used tracking number.
